Description This article deals with the ethical approach of the selected football supporters to some negative features appearing in football visitors´ behavior. The group of respondents consists of 158 supporters of Slavia Praha (Czech football club). Within the questionnaire survey, which was made in the seasons 2015/16 and 2016/17, seven negative phenomena were selected and examined. Respondents´ opinion about the rate of negative influence, as well as the rate of active participation, were collected and expressed via Likert Scale. The statistical evaluation of the data included correlation matrices, cluster analysis and correspondence analysis. The deontological and consequentialist positions determining a major character of the ethical approach are described in the next part of the paper in short. The role of deontology for care of duties and obeying rule is explained within discussion. In conclusion, we argue that the evaluation of the results does not evince any signs of deontological approach apparent within the selected group of respondents.
